Goodwill, good paint and good hard work can pay off big!
This is one of the first pieces Robert helped me with. Total cost for the piece and supplies... $40. Sold for $175 within about 2 weeks at our favorite shop, Then &Again Home Marketplace, in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
|We painted the base with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Step one was a coat was in Old Ochre and then we did a French Linen wash. I found these fabulous little knobs at Hobby Lobby... never seem them before or since. They add a little tasteful bling.|
|We added this little decorative piece which added lots of character and covered a tacky little carved flower. It's little touches like that can totally change a piece.|
|Here's the little stool after we finished with it. Want to see the before?|
|Lovely... right? And this is AFTER I cleaned all the disgusting gunk off of it.|
